Turn your old Game Boy into an Android gamepad with this clever hack

This announcement didn't make it to CES, but it's no less nifty. Brian Benchoff at Hackaday devised a clever scheme to reuse his old Game Boy for Android gaming.

After gutting an old DMG-01, [Chad] set to work turning the D-pad and buttons in the Game Boy into something his Galaxy Nexus could understand. He chose a Bluetooth connection to provide input for his emulators, with the hardware generously donated from a Nintendo Wiimote.

The Unconsumption kids would love this.
